Hi my fellow veggies!!
My name's Dani and I've been a vegetarian for about 5 years now and I recently made the switch to a vegan lifestyle a few months ago. I'm new to seeking support in online forums but I decided to give it a try! yay!!
I'm 23 and I've been fluffy most of my life. I'm tired of the "if only" and "when I"... I'm ready to start my life because I know I've wasted too much time worrying about losing weight... looking back on everything now, I've always had that mentality that I needed to be thin in order to be able to be myself... I've hidden behind this shell for ages and I'm just tired of it.
Anyway, since starting a vegan lifestyle, I've increased my exercise regime and have lost 21 lbs! I can't believe it!!
I'm currently 171 and 5'4...I'd say that my build was medium... (I started out at 192) and my goal weight is 136, which my mom said would be way too much for me to lose! She said I would look like skin and bones. My other friend said that too... my mom seems to think that I just need to lose another ten pounds... but my friend says I should stop at 150... and my doctor told me my ideal weight should be between 125-140. So I'm just confused... can anyone shed some light on this?
thank you!! can't wait to meet some new people!
